Building Our Future



The Dayton Region Manufacturers Association (DRMA) Foundation is dedicated to building and sustaining a qualified workforce for the region's manufacturing industry, an industry with significant economic impact throughout southwest Ohio.

Guided by a volunteer board of directors who understands the industry’s workforce challenges, the DRMA Foundation, a 501c3 charitable organization, meets the needs of the manufacturing industry by funding DRMA's workforce activities and efforts, which translate to individual opportunity, manufacturing growth, and community prosperity.
Manufacturing Means More Fundraising Campaign

Our initiatives create awareness of opportunities and enhance the lives of individuals who choose careers in manufacturing.  Because these opportunities are projected to grow over the next ten years, expanding our efforts will positively impact the Dayton Region’s economy by creating a more robust workforce and a more vibrant and prosperous community.
